cordeliaVilla Heights is fortunate to have Cordelia Park within its boundaries.  Cordelia Park is a large city park that contains our community garden, a new playground, a new events pavilion, a swimming pool and splash-pad, the Cross Charlotte Trail, a basketball court, and a lot of open green space!

More information on Cordelia Park can be found on the county webpage.

Community Garden

The Villa Heights Community Garden was established in April 2014, thanks to the vision, dedication, and sweat equity of community members, along with a generous matching grant from the City of Charlotte’s Neighborhood & Business Services. The garden is located in beautiful Cordelia Park just below the playground. You can easily find it by looking down the hill to the brightly painted shed.

The public pool at Cordelia Park is a wonderful attraction for kids during the summer months, offering an outdoor swimming pool and a splash-pad.
